Letter of the Law.
Dowling-Sendor, Benjamin
American School Board Journal, v190 n4 p64-65,70 Apr 2003
A recent decision by the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in a case from Arkansas centered on a vicious letter written by an 8th-grade boy about his former girlfriend and turned over to school officials. The court ruled for the school district in expelling the student for the year, without allowing him to attend an alternative school. Argues that suspension and assignment to an alternative school seem harsh enough. (MLF)
